Create an itinerary including Semmering Railway
The Semmering railway (German: Semmeringbahn) in Austria, which starts at Gloggnitz and leads over the Semmering to Mürzzuschlag, was the first mountain railway in Europe built with a standard gauge track. It is commonly referred to as the world's first true mountain railway, given the very difficult terrain and the considerable altitude difference that was mastered during its construction. It is still fully functional as a part of the Southern Railway which is operated by the Austrian Federal Railways.

  • The Semmering area itself is massive, covering several train stations and bridges, you could spend several days just hiking. There is a 3 to 4-hour one-way walk from the Semmering Bahnhof to...

  • Small, but great views and experience
  • It's a beautiful railway, I rode on a stunning autumn day, the view and the colors with the quiet modern train, the viaducts and the tunnels were really relaxing. It's worthy to ride it one time in a life. At Semmering station there is a free little museum.
